Stayed at this hotel in July 2010.
Great location on the hill with a short walk down to the Harbor and beautiful views from the breakfast room in the morning, BUT
We checked in on the sat, and my e mail confirmation stated that the balance of the stay was :
Total cost: £135.00
Tariff: Room and Breakfast
Deposit Received: £67.50
Needless to say, upon check out, the rather rude receptionist said that i was silly to think the balance would only be that much and that i should have read and checked the e mail properly, to which i replied,' The hotel e mailed me the tarriff, why would i question it!
There was no response to this., she then proceeded to cross out the figure on my e mail and charge us double.
We got the keys for our room and to say it was small was an understatement! I walked in and fell over the bed, our view was a wall and the space, well...there wasn't any.
Clean and tidy yes, but more a room for a single person and certainly not what i would expect for the money we ended up paying!
Overall a fab wedding and a lovely location but we certainly wouldn't stay there again.
